Uvadoble 2017

The first wine from a previous wine tasting at Vinopremier.com who hosted the Bodegas Ochoa from the Navarra region. Bodegas Ochoa have three ranges of wines made buy three different wine makers. This first white wine is made by Adriana Ochoa. It is named after the two grapes used: Viura and Viogner. Hence the name double V. Apparently Adiana spent some years learning her craft in Australia where she fell in love with the French grape variety Viogner. when she returned to Spain she wanted to introduce it to the wines here and UvaDoble is the result.

This wine has a pale straw colour and a medium light scent of peach and flowers. It also has oily tones from the 6 months spent on the lees.

A dry wine with light to medium body and a good lingering finish.
The oily, floral, peach flavours come through nicely and it is one of my favourite combinations. I loved this wine ad I found it both rich in flavour but still quite light and refreshing. Others in the group found it too sweet, even though it is a dry wine, due to the strong flavours.

This is definitely one I’d buy, in fact I did as the price and flavour were a great match.
